Dr. Scott Jensen is claiming the office of Attorney General Keith Ellison is now involved in the fifth investigation of his medical license.
The family physician and former gubernatorial candidate announced Monday evening that he had received from the attorney general’s office a “notice of conference” requesting his presence before the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice’s “complaint review committee.”
In an explanatory letter dated Jan. 25, the Board of Medical Practice’s executive director, Ruth Martinez, wrote that the committee would be using “representatives of the Office of the Attorney General” as its legal representation during the meeting.
A spokesperson for the attorney general’s office confirmed to Alpha News that it “provides legal representation to the Board of Medical Practice, as it does to more than 100 state agencies, boards, and commissions,” but could not comment on any of the board’s potential investigations.
“This meeting is not a hearing, but rather a forum for the committee to have a face-to-face conversation with you about the concerns expressed in the Notice,” Martinez’s letter added.
Jensen shared the announcement in a video posted to his Twitter account Monday evening. He slammed the state government’s notice as “raw politics” and “raw power.”

Jensen implied that since he is no longer a candidate for governor, an “opportunity” has arisen for “dissenting voices to be crushed.”
“This is about punishment. This fifth investigation started 15 months ago. The entirety of 2022, had no engagement,” he said. “What do you think happened in 2022? I think you probably know.”
“If it can happen to me, it can certainly happen to you.”
Jensen further stated that, as far as he knew, none of the complaints against him were filed by patients. Drawing from the notice, he cited alleged grievances against a part of his curriculum vitae, as well as his public skepticism of the mainstream COVID narrative and forced vaccination.
In late 2021 the Board of Medical Practice asked Jensen to turn over medical records of certain patients to whom he prescribed ivermectin to treat COVID.
